A new Campagnolo enthusiasts club has launched in the USA, offering members savings on Campagnolo and other Italian cycling product brands, exclusive offers on club merchandise and travel including group rides, tours and training camps.
Based in Boulder, Colorado, according to the club’s organizers, there are five levels of membership with Campagnolo Club, and each is based on the leader or special classification jerseys of the Giro d’Italia. Membership starts at $19.33 annually, Campagnolo’s first year of industrial production for its Quick Release, and all members receive 50% off Club kit, a shopping discount and free shipping. The main differentiating points of membership levels are discount amount, and eligibility for an annual dividend and profit sharing.
Additionally, any Club membership taken out before January 1, 2020 will be valid through December 31, 2020, or over 12- months. In addition, Members who refer friends, family or acquaintances with a paid membership will receive $19.33 per referral, up to the cost of their membership. Finally, the first 33 Campagnolo brand passionates to become Members with the Campagnolo Club will be considered “Founding Members”, and may have to be determined additional benefits.
“Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, and the Campagnolo Club sought to create a brand experience that exuded the Campagnolo® aesthetic, as if the Italian company itself had created the Club. A primary objective of the Campagnolo Club is to create a sense of community around the brand, and steering committee members included consumers, distributors, manufacturers and retailers. The Campagnolo Club has virtual offices in Italy and the United States, and can be found online at www.campagnolo.club; Campagnolo Club is expecting to establish affiliate Chapters worldwide,” say the club’s founders.
The club has also launched a contest, asking new members to help design the Campagnolo Club kit for 2020.
“Designs should be in Campagnolo Club primary colors (e.g., Black, Blue Navy, Blue Royal, Blue Sky, Grey and/or White), and may incorporate the Campagnolo, Fulcrum or MyCampy logo(s). The Campagnolo Club kit should be a coordinated design, and articles to consider include Arm Warmers, Bib-Shorts and Tights, Gloves, Jacket, Short-Sleeve Jersey and Vest. The deadline for submission is October 15, 2019, and final selection will be made on or before October 31, 2019. The successful designer will receive a complimentary Maglia Rosa Membership to the Campagnolo Club, a $100 value,” the club asks.
